RELATED CONTENT

As long as people have been writing books, their enemies have been destroying them. Fernando Báez traces the bibliocidal arc of humanity with such thoroughness and matter-of-factness that this ongoing tragedy becomes almost darkly comical. Countless volumes have been lost at sea and perished in accidental fires—and torched in deliberate ones, sometimes by their own authors. In the end, trying to wrap your head around humanity’s lost literary treasures is like attempting to comprehend the size of the universe
